how good of a muscle ache are you getting the following days and whats your goal? you going for strength or endurance? the weights your at right now seem pretty good but id up the lat pull downs, im pretty sure you could do 100//110//120 easy. im 170 and im doing 150b lats

Also, try doing the least amount of weight at the end and go for as many as possible. curls @15 is kinda low. start at 20, 25 then go to 15 or even 10 and just do as many as possible at the end, it seems odd but the more curls you do while your muscles are aching means those curls are getting you stronger. if your not getting that muscle burn feeling your not getting stronger.

Another tip, try doing muscle group workouts. bench presses, shoulder presses, flys, curls.

if your going for maximum strength, do sets and reps of where 6 is your max or near max rep. endurance and strength are two different things and your muscles behave differently when doing these. you know when your doing a nice strength workout when you need to breath deep or grunt.

Hey adamm[] . . . thanks for the advice.

Right now, I'm just getting back into lifting after some time off. My goals are to build strength and get some size.

I'm following Bill Pearl's program at: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

To be honest with you, I have a 20 month plan to improve myself physically, mentally, spiritually, financially, and socially. This program is for the physical part.

I'm sore, but definitely could raise the weight with the pulldowns. I also like your idea of starting heavier.

Rest day . . . 30 minutes running. I have an obstacle course race this weekend (supports Carry The Weight). Thus, I'm trying not to go too hard this week.

I will hit the weights tomorrow, though.

30 minutes of running is a *rest day*?

You and I have vastly different definitions of "rest."

So soooorrrre this morning from the race. The race was a blast, though.

If you've never tried a mud run or obstacle race, I highly recommend it.

YAY! I love cardio but still think, if you are doing 12, you could raise the weight a tiny bit
